AC Milan will almost certainly sign Adel Taarabt on a permanent basis this summer.

The Moroccan playmaker joined the Rossoneri from QPR on loan in January, after cutting short his temporary spell with Fulham, and has impressed so much at the San Siro that his agent Vincenzo Morabito suggests a deal will be forthcoming.

"Milan will take up their option and there is already a deal between the two clubs to sign him at the end of the season for a reasonable, symbolic price," he told

"It won't be any more than €3 million (£2.5m) or €4 million (£3.3m). It would mean something extraordinary if that didn't happen."
